(http://assets.cgsociety.org/nvart/328423_1211504238/1024bound)Hello.
I used 3Ds Max9 and After Burn for the asteroid and Photoshop for the inlay.
Can you let me some comments.
Thanks a lot ^^

The overall image quality is nice and the graphic quality of the elements looks strong, however, there are a few compositional things that are holding the piece back I think.

The main issue I think is the entire piece is overly dark and shares a similar tone, with a lack of contrast. This is limiting your depth and makes it hard to tell distance/placement. I am not sure if the meteor has struck the mt side or is still in the air. I also have no idea what is happening in the left 1/3rd of the image as it is almost pure black. The feel of the country landscape makes me feel that the view is high, but the smoke trail has so many similar tones to the ground that it feels we're low, so placement is confusing. Finally, it appears your comet is just going to strike a mt side. Perhaps add some element there that a viewer would care about to give the piece focus and some emotional weight, as a rock striking a mt, does not seem too worrisome of hand.

Apologies if the above sounds harsh. Please note i do like your work and am just trying offer some constructive crit. Good luck in the contest!
